About Us

In 2001, following the development of the Layer-by-layer encapsulation at Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, five Max Planck scientists founded the start-up company Capsulution. The main focus was the encapsulation and delayed, or triggered, release of active pharmaceutical ingredients. In parallel, under the direction of the chemist Dr. Lars Dähne, there was increasingly successful research on the application of this technology to non-pharmaceutical fields. These developments eventually led, in 2008, to the spin-off company Surflay Nanotec GmbH which was founded by Dr. Lars Dähne and four other employees of Capsulution. Through numerous innovative developments in various applications Surflay Nanotec GmbH has continued to grow and can now boast 14 interdisciplinary scientists with extraordinarily broad expertise. With many modern equipment, excellent networking possibilities, and a prime location in technology park Berlin-Adlershof, Surflay offers the best conditions in order to solve your problems or perform extraordinary developments.
